  1. Bill White was endorsed by the Houston Chronicle

    The Chronicle wrote, “Texas can’t afford four more years of Perry’s leadership,” noting the “unprecedented budget deficit estimated at $21 billion,” and continued, “As he did in Houston, White can bring innovative financial solutions, a passion for environmental protection, and a strong bipartisan and ethical commitment to a governor’s office tarnished by charges of cronyism, partisanship and catering to contributors at the expense of constituents.”

    The Chronicle concluded, “We’ve watched Bill White run the mayor’s office, appointing both Democrats and Republicans and building bridges across ethnic and ideological divides. We believe he’ll do the same at the state capitol, and we urge Texans to give him that opportunity.”

    Our momentum is growing across the state and we are on track to win in November.

  2. This Week Roundtable: Tea Party Electability George Will, David Sanger, Peter Beinart and Tom Ross

    Delaware Republican Chair Not Very Happy. Too bad. So sad. The republicans had a chance to come out against the racist teabaggers but no, they keep silent and let the monster grow. Now it’s going to eat them.

    Alright alright! I owe you a quarter. The President & Family went to Church. I’ll mail the money. :)


    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and his family attended an hourlong service Sunday morning at a church just across the street from the White House.

    Accompanied by his wife, Michelle, and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, Obama strolled across Lafayette Square to attend St. John’s Church. Sasha held her father’s hand as they crossed the park.

    Obama has attended the pale yellow Episcopal church three times previously, as well as other churches in the nation’s capital.

    A pew nine rows back from the altar at St. John’s carries a small brass plaque designating it as “The President’s Pew.” Church history claims that every president since the nation’s fourth chief executive, James Madison, has visited.

    That Dowd bitch is at it again..

    Christine O’Donnell is in a fantasy world. Literally.

    The pretty Palin Mini-Me identifies with the women of Middle Earth, comparing herself to the female characters in the “Lord of the Rings” novels by J. R. R. Tolkien.

    “Look at the significance that he gives to Eowyn, the Lady of Rohan,” O’Donnell said on C-Span in 2003. “She was a warrior spirit and, to me, that’s who I love. I mean, I aspire to be soft and gentle like Arwen, but realistically, I’m a fighter, like Eowyn.”

    O’Donnell said she liked Tolkien’s outlook on gender: “On the one hand, there’s the attitude that’s normally on the conservative side — as a conservative woman, I feel I can say this — that stifles women. There’s almost the stereotypical attitude of, to be a true woman, you have to stay at home. And I’ve actually had people say to me, ‘Why do you choose a career over marriage?’ Honestly, I’ve had only a few significant relationships, and they’ve broken up with me. And one of the things I’ve been told is, ‘If you weren’t so strong, you’d be married by now.’ ”

    Colin Powell is on MTP telling Ameicans go after the President if you disagree with his policy, but going down LOW, stop it. David Gregory is a prick.

    G.O.P. Insider Fuels Tea Party and Suspicion
    Published: September 18, 2010

    WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to the Delaware primary, Sal Russo hosted a radio fund-raiser, organized a political rally and pressed the case with reporters that Christine O’Donnell was the Tea Party’s choice for the United States Senate. He also set off what he calls a “money bomb,” pouring at least $250,000 into television and other advertisements promoting the little-known candidate.
